Do you mean sore joint or hot-spot/blister?
Interesting. I'm on my 3rd pair and until just recently they have been faultless. I've just started getting a small hot spot on the top of my big toe -right under where that excess material from the tongue is. It's too soft to cause a jjoint problem though
I have the Pure Grit 2s and also notice how little material is under tthat area now.
How do you find grits in terms of trail performance? Love my flows and was thinking of a trail version but the sole just doesn't look like it could cope with a lot of mud.
It won't cope with a lot of mud (not many do), but I guess it's not designed to. For that you'd have to go for extreme Innov8s. I would say it's best for dryer trails. but is also good on road, which if like me you have to run on roads for a mile or two to get off road, then it's agreat 'all-rounder'.
Thanks. I think you're right about innov8s. I got a pair of orocs and they are great on mud - though a bit embarassing on pavement before I get there.
Thing is, if grits are an all-rounder like that, what is their advantge over e.g. pure flows?
